Meghan Markle and husband Prince Harry have taken to the Internet to share a new video of baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor as he turns one.
It is a significant milestone for the power couple, and the clip was a huge hit on social media. It was viewed close to one million times on the Save the Children’s UK Instagram page.
In the video, the 38-year-old American actress reads Archie’s favorite book, Duck!” Rabbit!, to him and Prince Harry even makes a cameo.
It was the perfect way to support the charity that aims to lift children through education. Their followers loved what they did, and they were not shy to show their support.

A mother and royal enthusiast, who has just donated to the charity, explained: “Happy Birthday, Archie! Wonderful family, thank you for sharing and great job Duke and Duchess — despite so much criticism you face daily, please know many of us parents, especially moms, think you are AMAZING and support you 👏👏!! I totally wish you were in my mommy group! Just donated.”
The footage even managed to touch people who are outside of the United Kingdom at the moment; one woman shared: “Happy birthday Archie! Thank you for sharing this beautiful video & story! I was so engaged and just wanted to know if it was a duck or a rabbit, haha. Loved seeing them in candid moments as a family. Just donated from NZ 💕.”
A third fan of the royal family added: “Happy 1st Birthday Archie 🎂 Thank you so much Meghan & Harry for sharing this beautiful moment with your gorgeous son Archie & a fabulous cause as reading 📖 as it helps growth mentally, emotionally and psychologically. I’ve donated in your honor 😘.”
The young family left the royal family earlier this year, and they are trying to find a new house in Los Angeles after staying in Canada for a few weeks.
Meghan and Harry are going through a lot of changes. Prince William‘s younger brother was even forced to sell his rifles because he is giving up hunting for his wife, who is not a fan of the practice. He was able to make $60,000 with the sales.
A friend of the buyer told the Sun: “He bought them because he wanted them, not because they belonged to Harry. But he was quite chuffed when he found out.”
Markle’s friend, conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall told the Radio Times earlier this year: “I think Harry will stop because Meghan doesn’t like hunting.”
As baby Archie celebrates his birthday, his parents are starting a new chapter in their lives after the so-called Megxit, their official break from the royal family.
